    Overall Experience: The teachers are very helpful and strive to teach every students that seeks for knowledge. Bullying is not a big problem and everyone seems to get along. More freedom and respect is given to the students on a regular basis. I enjoyed taking Honors and Advanced Placement courses that prepared you for college. Our band is amazing; the highest ranking in state competitions. The only problem is funding needs to be more spread out to other clubs and the arts. Sport get the most funding, while strings(orchestra), art, and band gets little to nothing. I still love this school and would give it for all the money in the world.

    Overall Experience: I came from a very rough school before my family moved to North Carolina, so in comparison, this school is much more civilized and has been a much more positive experience. The students are easier to get along with and the teachers I have had so far have been absolutely wonderful.

    Administration & Policies: The administration is alright, though they look for any excuse to get you in trouble. On that note, they also care about the students and just want to see them succeed through their mistakes.
